Main page News, Mining, Bitcoin

A solo miner with a hashrate of 2 PH/s included block #818,588 on the Bitcoin blockchain on November 26, CKPool pool administrator Con Kolivas has announced.

According to him:

"A miner of this size would solve a block on average only once every 5 years."

BTC.com has reported the user received a reward of 6.25 BTC, valued at around $230,000.

According to Glassnode, the network hashrate at the time was 499.3 EH/s, smoothed by a seven-day moving average.

Last month another solo miner included a block on the Bitcoin network with a hashrate of 11 PH/s.

Previously, a user with a hashrate of just 10 TH/s mined a block of the largest crypto by market cap.
